Celtic travel to face Alloa in a huge Scottish Cup mismatch this weekend as they seek to avoid a major upset.


Scottish League One side Alloa are fighting for their lives in the third tier of the football pyramid and haven't won any of their last nine league outings.

As if the tie needed any extra spice, Rangers icon Barry Ferguson is the manager of Alloa and will be even more determined to upset the odds. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Alloa v Celtic on TV and online.
